Money can’t buy you love, but it sure can get you some of the best views in Fort Worth.
The penthouse at the Omni Residences, aka the entire 33rd floor, is available for $7.9 million and features five balconies that provide a 360-degree portrait of our fair city.
When you consider that a smaller penthouse at the Ritz Carlton Residences in Uptown Dallas (it’s only on the 22nd floor!) sold recently for $7 million, and the penthouse at Museum Tower in Dallas, overlooking Klyde Warren Park, is on the market for $24 million, the Omni pad begins to look like a real bargain. (In New York, a Park Avenue penthouse just sold for $87.7 million to a Saudi billionaire, making it the city’s biggest closed sale of the year. So everything is relative.)
The Omni property, owned by Robert Rowling, founder of the holding company of Omni Hotels & Resorts, has been on the market for more than a year. But agent Allison Hayden of Briggs-Freeman Sotheby’s, says that’s not uncommon for such high-end homes. “There are certain buyers who are looking for a one-of-a-kind place like this.”
“I wish more people could see the views,” she added. “I hope the new owners will keep letting me come up and look (after it’s sold).”
The penthouse, which has been featured on Modern Luxury Texas magazine, has four bedrooms, five living areas, more than five bathrooms, plus two dining areas, a four-car garage and a private elevator.
